Pictures from a recent fire in Abbotsford, WI which claimed the life of a FF.


While I know the NIOSH report is not out yet, such pictures should be looked at for training purposes and size ups.


While such pics can lead to criticizing and critiquing and hopefully FFs pic up on some issues in the pics, it helps to use them as to how a dept would approach a similar scene......what worked and didn't, what was done and what shouldn't have been done.


A similar thread on this stated the FF died after doing an initial attack and the roof collapsed while pulling crews out to go defensive. However, the pictures do not correspond with that statement. One can see defensive operations in place before you see the medical helicopter and other FFs being tended to.


I'm sure the NIOSH report will reveal more of what has occurred, but such reports can take awhile to be helps to use such pictures to prevent a similar loss of life or injuries to other FFs. The same pics were on Statter 911 and the photographer was on scene prior to the FD arrival and there for the duration. All pics are in chronological order and she said on Statter that anyone can use the pics....just ensure she is given credit for the pics.
